We understand that we are still living through a pandemic, so we will be taking sanitary measures to stay safe while playing and socialising!

  • Balls will be disinfected before each training and game
  • Hand sanitiser will be provided to our players before each training and game

TRAININGS:

We will train twice a week, one session for beginners and one for intermediate/advanced players. We will adjust training to fit our members' level! 

Apart from our GIAG sessions, which will be held at an outdoor court, training will be held at Harris Academy Bermondsey this year.

Beginners: Tuesdays 6-8 pm
Intermediate/Advanced: Thursdays 6-8 pm

 

GAMES:

AND WE ARE BACK! After a year without competitions due to Covid-19, our teams will be back on the courts competing and ready to win! 

The two leagues we will compete in:

  • BUCS South Eastern 2B
  • LUSL Intermediate Premier

Our games usually take place on Wednesdays (BUCS) and Sundays (LUSL) during term time.

Our teams reached the 4th and the 2nd position of their league in 2019/20.

SOCIALS:

The social aspect of the club is one of the unique things about our team and will be a highlight of your time at LSE! Your committee has prepared socials that will make you have an unforgettable time and will allow you to mix with all the year groups!

WEEKLY SOCIAL

Usually, every Wednesday, we party with other clubs - including Men's Basketball - and then head to the great Zoo Bar in Leicester Square. We also organise non-clubbing activities such as movie nights, team dinners, volunteering activities, dart nights and lunches. We can't wait to see you there! 

A TRIP!

Every year, the committee organizes a trip somewhere in Europe. Amongst many destinations, our members went to Amsterdam, Paris and Budapest!

In 2018, along with the Men’s Basketball Club, we competed in Paris in the Les Parisiennes 2018 Sports Tournament. We also traveled to nearby towns to compete in away games which is a great way to see different parts of the country.
